Discover Italy through its agriturismi: Veneto

Posted on: 12-12-2014

“DISCOVER ITALY THROUGH ITS AGRITURISMI”

Veneto is one of the twenty regions of Italy. With a population around 5 million, it is the fifth most populous region in Italy. Its capital and largest city is Venice. 
The climate changes significantly between one area to another. Continental on the plains, the climate is milder along the Adriatic coast, around Lake Garda and in the hilly areas. The lowlands are often covered by thick fog.
In addition to Italian, most inhabitants also speak Venetian.
Veneto boasts an extensive and valued production of red and white wines, including Amarone di Valpolicella, Breganze Bianco, Bardolino, appassimento wines such as Recioto and sparkling (spumante) wines such as Prosecco from Conegliano-Valdobbiadene.

Are you planning to go to Veneto? Here you can find some tips: 

Verona: famous for its Roman amphitheatre, the Arena. 
In the past the Arena was where Ludi (shows and gladiator games) took place, while today it is used for public events, fairs, as well as theatre and opera during warm summer nights.
Because of the value and importance of its many historical buildings, Verona has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Verona is also famous as the location where William Shakespeare set his play Romeo & Juliet.

 

 

 

Padova: famous for its university, founded in 1222.
The university has a long list of professors and alumni such as Copernicus, Galileo Galilei.
The presence of the university attracted many distinguished artists, such as Giotto and Donatello.
Padova is also the birthplace of the famous architect Andrea Palladio.
Southwest of the city's lies the Euganaean Hills, as praised by Petrarch, Ugo Foscolo and Shelley.

#NIADES14, #Freedom, #Sweetobefree

Posted on: 10-12-2014

After many and long reflections, Gianluca Morino (Cascina Garitina) has decided to go his own way, "not depending any longer on bureaucracy and a Consorzio which never really covers the interests of the smaller growers."

Gianluca underlines the Freedom concept:

Freedom to liberate oneself from the official dusty Brachetto world

Freedom of a wine that can be drunk and enjoyed at any time, at any place and with many dishes (also salty, but better not with chocolate), preferably at a temperature of 4°C.  

For the complete story please check Gianluca's blog:  https://cascinagaritina.wordpress.com/2014/11/26/niades14-freedom-sweetobefree/
